Pinecone Turkeys

My 2.5 year old really enjoyed this craft, although there wasn’t too much that he could help with. He did help with the glue, but I did the pipe cleaners. He liked the finished product so much that he wanted the turkey to sleep in his bed!

Leaf Creatures


A simple craft that will let children’s creativity flow.

Pom-Pom Apple Tree

Supplies

  • Twig
  • Tacky Glue/Hot Glue
  • ¾ inch green and red pom-poms
  • Base-styrofoam cup and tape or air dry clay, etc.

Instructions

  • First, find a twig with at least three side branches. Trim it so that it’s about 10 inches tall.
  • Form a base around the trunk of the tree. I used a styrofoam cup. I poked a whole in the middle and taped the stick into place on the inside of the cup. I then painted it green.
